ITEM 8100652 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased direct from a distributor
Medium body, fine and bright fruit and a long finish. Complex. Nuanced.
A success for the vintage, with racy-edged damson plum, red currant and bitter cherry fruit backed by a bright savory and tobacco edge.
...gently unfolding with mulberry, forest floor and wild mint aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, gently gripping the mouth with a touch of chalkiness underneath the caressing finish.
Plum, blackberry and blueberry on the fruit-driven nose. Fresh and clean on the palate, with spicy dark fruit flavors that are less dense than usual for this wine, in the style of the year.
Dark and tarry. Lots of black fruit. Chewy, dense and yet harmonious in that big style. Dark and savoury and with a lovely graphite flavour and surprisingly fine texture.
Promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classe A in Sept 2012
